So, a large part of what I do with SU is custom cabinet and storage design.
I have done a ton of work in other programs (that were proprietary to my previous employers) - but am fairly new to SU.
I typically start with blueprints, work on preliminary mock ups for the end user, and then - inevitably - the actual room sizes will be different from the blue prints (for obvious reasons).
Once we reach this point, I have to correct the room dimensions, re size the cabinetry, and re do the dimensions in my production documentation (I provide plans, elevations, and 3D images to the contractors / carpenters who carry out the actual installation).
Typically, I end up starting a new SU file, re drawing the room with the correct dimensions, and copy/ pasting the components (I usually do a wall of cabinets as a group of components so I can paste and then scale the whole group)
It seems to me that there should be a faster/ easier way to accomplish this task.
I have considered drawing all walls as individual objects (instead of what I do now, which is to create an outline of the footprint, follow me to create depth for the walls, then push/pull for needed height). That should allow me to use the tape tool to resize the individual walls…
I know there is a wealth of knowledge on this forum and I also know that there is a lot I am still learning.
Any thoughts to suggestions that you might have on a better/ faster way to tackle this are very welcome
Thank you in advance for your ideas!
